Storing seasonal clothes can be easy. All you need to do is use the tips we have prepared for you and you will be good to go. The trick is to do it in a way that will be easy for you to get to them once the time comes. Obviously, you also want to make sure that your clothes (and equipment) are in good condition later.
#1 tip for you – use vacuum bags
Especially when you are storing those bulky winter coats, jackets, and such. Vacuum bags are a perfect solution for storing seasonal clothes. You can even use those cute little fresheners that will protect your clothes and make them smell nice for months. That is how much you need it anyways. This way you can store all those bulky clothes under your bed, in the back of your closet, or in the attic. It won’t take up as much space and everything will be safe and sound. This is a very inexpensive tool (those vacuum bags) and it will make such a difference. If you buy good quality vacuum bags you can reuse them many times.
#2 choose carefully where you want to store seasonal clothes
Clothing should be kept in the main rooms of the house. If you don’t have the space – there is another option. You can keep them in a climate-controlled storage unit. Don’t worry, nowadays you can easily find them pretty much everywhere. This is the safest option if you don’t have a place in your home. Mold, mildew, and insects thrive in damp environments like basements and attics so make sure to consider that. In the absence of such issues in your home, feel free to make use of the mentioned areas and occasionally check on the security of your clothing. If you don’t have enough room in your main closet, use the space under the stairs, in an extra closet, behind or under the bed, or wherever else you can find. Your vacuum bags will help you to fit even the chunkiest of jackets and sweaters.
#3 Prepare your clothes well
Ok, we figured out where to store clothes and the tools that can be of help. Now, we need to talk you through preparing those seasonal clothes. You can’t just pack everything and hope for the best. Especially if you have some pricy items there. Start by washing everything. Make sure that all your clothes are completely dried. Any moisture can make huge problems over time. If you have a drying machine – that will be of help now. If not, you just need to be patient. Now everything is ready for storing seasonal clothes and you can start packing them inside those vacuum bags.
Before we go we have another tip to shape – label bags. It will be much easier if you only want to take a couple of things to know which bag is the one you are looking for. After a few months, you will forget where you put which weather for example.
